Born in 1974 in the United Kingdom, Dan Holdsworth lives and works in London. Holdsworth creates large-scale photographs characterized by the use of traditional techniques and unusually long exposure times. His practice deals with hybridity and limits: what we recognize and what we fail to understand. It engages with contemporary forms of the sublime, exploring the limits that shape our perception of time and space. Holdsworth often travels to remote locations around the world in order to capture deserted landscapes and futuristic environments, reminiscent of science fiction settings. His photographic series “The world in itself” (2000) documents hard and cold landscapes, which appear as barren and otherworldly as the lunar surface. His project “Machine for living” (1999) presents the city as a soulless device, at once powerful and threatening. Human presence is both evoked and repressed whereas the plastic qualities of motorways and buildings are magnified.
